What would be the best way to get a small hose down the ac drain tube to clean it out thoroughly.?
A vacuum cleaner type idea of some sort or what.
Im getting a build up of the condensation and it mustn't be clearing out enough from the evaporator housing enough as im getting an interior leak.

Have something to contribute?

A lengh of 15 amp wire will do the trick and be flexible enough to not damage anything.

Ive had the passenger carpet pulled up a good few months now and its been bone dry for about 2 weeks now.
I haven't been using the air con in that time, just the normal hot/cold fan. Turned the air con on yesterday and guess what, the floors getting wet again. :wacko:
I dont understand this at all, im going to drive this fcuking car into a river shortly if it wants to be so wet all the time :lol:
I have checked and messed about with the ac drain twice and its leaking water as it should, so why is this shitbox still leaking?
Its definitely condensation and not coolant.
Rant over for another while :D :(
